This device has great audio quality and terrible range (not what is claimed), but if you've already bought it you're in luck! There is a quick modification that can restore this device to the advertised range.
Modification Instructions (you'll need a small flat head screwdriver and a hot glue gun):
Pop the top off of it with the screwdriver starting at the ports.
Pull out the circuit board and you'll see a large piece of metal. This metal is entirely unnecessary and serves only to satisfy customers who innately feel that heavier is more valuable.
The piece of metal is held in place with double sided tape, so just pop it out.
Put the circuit board back in place (it should sort of snap in).
Put hot glue around the edge of the enclosure and put the top back in place.
Now this device conforms to all the specifications that Belkin specifies.
I hope this helps everyone out! Belkin's support department has chosen to ignore my inquiries.
I recently purchased 3 different models of bluetooth for a project involving recording the audio off a mobile device using bluetooth audio output.
I ran each devices audio through a high quality set of reference speakers: Tannoy 8" and a KRK Active Sub.
As a test I go and forth between playing music out of the mobile device using a standard 1/8" audio cable, and then switching over to the Belkin Bluetooth device.
I was shocked at how terrible the audio sounded via the Belkin Bluetooth device. It completely degraded the quality of the audio output in the following ways:
- the low-end was all missing, the sub hardly output anything
- the sound sound tinty and mushed, like you compressed your MP3 file down to 64kpbs.
- the sound also had an echo to it, like listening to it in a large room.
I suggest the Logitech Bluetooth receiver(model 980-000540) over this device by a strong margin.
Modification of the Belkin receiver amounted to first opening the case, using a screwdriver or knife to pry off the top by carefully working around the top from the back (port) side of the case. Next, the circuit board was easily popped out so that the metal disk could be removed and discarded. While the circuit board is out of the case, a hole can be made in the side of the case nearest the power port, through which the USB cable will be fed. The hole is easily made with a hot soldering iron tip, or drill and should be kept small enough to be a tight fit, helping to keep the cable from being easily pulled out of the receiver.
After cutting a standard USB cable to about 4 inches in length, the cut end was prepped by stripping the insulation as needed to expose the red and black wires, then tinning those wires to aid soldering them to the circuit board.Read more ›
HOWEVER!!! I mainly purchased this so I could stream music from my Nexus One (Android phone) through my speakers in the living room while I was in the kitchen cooking (where I spend most of my time). I do not live in a big house and there is line of sight between the stove and the TV - probably a 20 foot distance. At that distance this thing will drop in and out a lot!!! Someone doesn't even need to block the line of sight, they just need to be near the device and it somehow interferes with the music. When I move it even close (say, 10 feet?) still if someone comes between my phone and the receiver it will drop the music. The best luck I've had so far is to leave my phone in a corner where I know no one will walk between the two. But that defeats the whole purpose of why I bought this. I'm going to experiment a bit and see if I can find a more suitable placement to get better results and I'll let everyone know if I find any worth sharing.

It works, but not as good as you would hope. You can't go very far with your phone at all. I have mine set up in my garage with a speaker set for when I entertain. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Ron K
